Descaling your coffee machine will not only prolong the equipment's life but also reduce blockages and internal damage.

How to descale your coffee machine.

If you want your coffee machine to continue to create great tasting coffee, no matter what brand it may be, Saeco, Jura, Delonghi, Sunbeam or Miele, then it is critical to descale and clean your coffee machine on a regular basis. it also important to use the right products to descale your coffee machine, as the use of certain cleaning agents can damage the internals of your coffee machine, leading to costly repairs.

Why is lime scale a problem?
When lime scale builds up on the various parts of your machine, the quality of the coffee gets reduced significantly.

Descaling: How often?
We recommend you descale your machine every 2-3 months depending on the hardness of your water. 

Do water filters help?
Yes! Water filters will reduce de lime scale significantly allowing you to descale less (every 6 months) and make your coffee taste a lot better.

Hard Water Issue
When you live in an area with so called "hard water" you might find you need to descale every 1-2 months. A Brita water filter will help you significantly.

Using Vinegar To Descale
We don't recommend it as vinegar leaves an unpleasant odour and taste which can effect your coffee. It is also ineffective in removing build up coffee oils.

Descaling Solutions Suitable For Every Coffee Machine!

How to descale your coffee machine

  1. Descale your coffee machine when it is cold. Put the mixed descaling solution into the water tank, turn on the machine and pump through the steam arm for approximately 20-25 seconds.
  2. If your coffee machine cannot pump water through the steam arm, pump water through the group handle without the handle in place. Immediately turn off the machine.
  1. Before you begin to descale your coffee machine, first read the instruction manual that came with your coffee machine, as some techniques, procedures and products can void your manufacturer’s warranty.
  2. We recommend that you utilise a proper citric acid based descaling solution specifically designed for coffee machines. Carefully follow the instructions on the packet to ensure the right mixture, failing to do so could damage your machine or result in an ineffective descale.
  3. Now your espresso machine is cold with the descaling solution inside all the water holding components (boiler, pump, etc). Now pump more solution through for about 1 minute. Turn the coffee machine off again and wait for descaling solution to do its work.
  4. While you are waiting for the descaling solution to eat away at the limescale build up, take the time to clean the other parts of the machine.
  5. Repeat the steps above until the water tank is completely empty. When you are at this stage all of the descaling solution should have been pumped through the coffee machine, removing the limescale build up. The whole descaling process should take about 5 cycles to empty the water tank and take from 40 minutes to hour to complete.
  6. Once you are finished pumping the descaling solution through the machine you must remove any remnants of descaling solution to ensure that you coffee doesn’t have an artificially bitter taste. Rinse the water tank in your coffee machine and fill with fresh water. Run the entire container of fresh water through your coffee machine, and then repeat again 2 times. After this make one or two coffees to eliminate any bitter taste and throw them away.
